MINHERIT(2) BSD System Calls Manual MINHERIT(2)
minherit -- control the inheritance of pages
minherit(caddr_t addr, size_t len, int inherit);
The minherit() system call changes the specified pages to have the inher-
itance characteristic inherit, which can be set to VM_INHERIT_NONE,
VM_INHERIT_COPY, or VM_INHERIT_SHARE. Not all implementations will guar-
antee that the inheritance characteristic can be set on a page basis; the
granularity of changes may be as large as an entire region.
